Spondias Dulcis - Ambarella (Buah Kedondong)

Locally known as "Buah Kedondong" (Great Hog Plum). The fruit is about the size of an apple with a pineapple-mango like flavor and crunchy texture. Its oval fruits, 2 ½ to 3 ½ in (6.25-9 cm) long, are long-stalked and are produced in bunches of 12 or more.

This fast growing tree can reach up to 60 ft (18 m) in its native homeland of Melanesia through Polynesia; however, it usually averages out at 30 to 40 ft (9-12 m) in other areas.

Over several weeks, the fruit fall to the ground while still green and hard, turning golden-yellow as they ripen.


Story :

A collegue gave few bunches of this fruit last few weeks. Made prickle since my kids & honey love it. It doesn't take so much time for them to finish it all (in one day ok). I need to keep it out of their sight just to ensure that the pricles sour enuff..
